The boreholes were found in the time between the demolition of old buildings and the construction of new buildings. Boreholes are considered demolition waste from destruction, but to Hymøller they are objects that remind her of times in transition and change, from old to new beginnings. They are also evidence of the significant change the world is undergoing, constantly renewing mostly concerning contemporary conditions.
She relates her search, what she finds and collects on construction sites, to an urban archaeologist who discovers, collects and analyzes the history of cities, through direct evidence, of material and remains from the past.
To Hymøller the sculpture is also a symbol of real estate control and rights over property and land. Arranged on a display, stacked on top or next to each other like gold artifacts, the boreholes appear prominent .
MAXI RELOAD IN UNKNOWN DEPTH
The exhibition “Maxi Reload in Unknown Depth” is about the love-hate relationship to the age we are living in and the unknown world we are entering. The artists Clara Black Starck and Kristine Hymøller occupy the Round Tower’s Library Hall with sculptures and objects that reflect their ambivalent relationship to innovation, architecture, machines, and technology.
The works of Clara Black Starck and Kristine Hymøller examine the urban infrastructure in a broad sense as a connection and a communication between points of the city, buildings, and people. The works are juxtaposed in order to create a dialogue between the artists’ individual and common interpretation of the persistent acceleration of the Third and Fourth Industrial Ages with the Library Hall as the setting for a narrative about the development of our society.
